A recent spike in Covid-19 cases in the four southern border provinces is a cause of concern and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has ordered the Public Health Ministry to monitor the situation closely, government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana on Thursday.
The PM also instructed Public Health Ministry’s permanent-secretary Dr Kiattibhomm Vongrachit to send a team to the provinces to monitor the situation. The PM hopes the outbreak can be contained in the next month or two with cases dropping by at least 10 per cent every week.
In response to Prayut’s instructions, the Public Health Ministry has sent 1 million Favipiravir tablets, 20,000 ATK test kits, 100 oxygen concentrators, 25,000 doses of AstraZeneca and 100,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine.
Wednesday saw 1,922 new cases in the four provinces – 309 in Pattani, 666 in Songkhla, 501 in Narathiwat and 446 in Yala.
